The OECD Development Assistance Committee's annual report on international aid.  This year's edition includes an overview by the DAC Chairman reviewing recent trends in aid volume, allocation, and effectiveness.  Special chapters on Effective Aid Management and Aid Effectiveness examine DAC experience in these areas. Individual chapters for each donor country summarise key features of each country's programme including data on total flows, breakdowns by income group, geographical region and sector, and listing of the top ten recipients. Country chapters also include commentary on the donor's commitment to the MDGs, aid effectiveness, and policy coherence. The comprehensive statistical annex provides graphs and tables showing the evolution of aid flows.

Overview by the DAC Chair

This chapter assesses progress on a number of indicators first set out in the Development Co-operation Report for 2003 to measure how the development community is contributing to the sustainable reduction of poverty. It finds that there is progress on many fronts, but that it has been relatively modest. As the indicators measure the results of a huge number of decisions by many different actors, it is not surprising that overall change is quite slow. But the findings underline the scope for much further progress if the development community is to make as large an impact as it should on helping poor countries advance towards the Millennium Development Goals.
